Was there not something in the early and mid sixties though, especially within Black Urban America at the time , that shines through in the music ? you know times were still quite hard , but getting better for many , hopes of a brighter future , and a general exhuberance in the air ( magically captured in the 45s ) that seeme..

  5. Ernest Mosely for me . The Female chorus absolutely kills it . Surprised the Sheppards goes for a few bob nowardays , used to be a throwaway disc , Tony Just in Manchesters underground market couldnt give em away for 40p in the seventies , he had loads of them .

  7. Yes exactly , Didnt realise Tony Cummings was commenting on such matters before he wrote for Black Music . Could never really understand his take on things don,t think there were many Northerners that were angry and annoyed about what was going on down South ,don,t think i gave the South a thought to be honest , throughout the Seventies, E xcept when the vitriolic articles were printed , The only thing that makes sense is tha..

    Wigan Top 20 June 1975

    I Remember those charts well , looking at it today , it definately seems that it is more of an advert for many discs that were available for sale at that time (or were about to become available) .

    ebay Q re 'buy it now' v 'make best offer'

    Unless it is an absolute priced up wrong bargain ,go in about 33-40 % under buy it now , and edge up slowly , if it's too cheap ,buy it now is the best option as others will also recognise this and buy. My best buy it now ? The Orlons. Envy(in your eyes ) Cameo £2.50 ( free postage ) a couple of years back .

She continually tried to reframe the narrative with ..
